Fashion Tips for Petites
Hey TLBC fans! Since the majority of our customers fall into the petite category, we decided to make a list of fashion tips and tricks that are sure to enhance your look. Be Aware of Patterns Try to avoid horizontal lines, wide prints, large floral patterns, and small detailed prints. All of these designs will “squish” your body. For Example: If you would like to wear stripes, vertical stripes are the best choice for petite women. You will be surprised at how much it will lengthen your body. Diagonal stripes have a similar effect, but the illusion will not be as strong as if you were to wear verticals. Don’t chop your body in half By pairing a cute solid colored top with a similar solid colored skirt, pant, or short, your outfit will flow better because it will create an elongated silhouette. . You can also try wearing a maxi dress. A maxi dress will make you look longer and leaner. Be careful when wearing a belt. More flattering ways petite women can sport a belt are 1) placing the belt directly under the bust line, or 2) wearing the belt on your hips. Shoes Shoes are the most effective way a petite woman can lengthen her figure. The easiest way you can elongate your legs is by rocking a cute pair of heels. A higher heel will make you look taller and improve your posture. If you do not feel comfortable in heels or stilettos, try wedges. Wedges are easier to walk in, but still provide you with a few more inches of height. Stand tall No matter what your height is, stand tall. Wear clothes that make you feel good, because we guarantee if you feel good, you will look good no matter what you wear. Wearing a bra that fits is the first step to feeling your best. It may not be seen on the outside, but it definitely is the foundation to your entire outfit and is the piece of clothing that is the closest to your body. Your intimate apparel should be comfortable and give you the shape you want for any outfit.
